    Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron is a decent game that offers some old school Battlefront fun, but is ruined by its bad controls and shabby camera.

    Venitca's story is ok, but the rest of the game fails. The fighting system is boring, it has a lot of technical flaws and the world feels uninspired.

    Lost Planet 2 has the potential to be a great game, but the different gameplay elements aren't polished enough. So in the end, Lost Planet 2 is a mixture of a lot of stuff, but nothing in the mix is better then mediocre.

    London 2012 is undoubtedly one of the best Summer Olympic games, but everyone who has played a couple of those, knows that doesn't say much. Some sports impress, while others fall short. The way SEGA has handled the grand sporting event, still isn't up to par.

    Sonic has always been an endless runner of sorts, and Sonic Dash fits perfectly in that picture. Thanks to the simple controls, running through the colorful environments is a joy. Sadly it is lacking in the amount of these environments and extra characters don’t really add anything. Aside from that, the game seems to push you towards in-app purchases a lot, which acts like a big stormy cloud above its joyful core.

    Dead Island: Riptide is more of the same. In the case of combat and leveling up this is a good thing. But unfortunately it also bring along all of the issues of its predecessor. They've also chosen for the more linear jungle and city settings instead of the unique holiday resort. These faults make this a disappointment that can still be fun to play.

    This specific Vita-version of the Jak and Daxter Trilogy doesn't do the series enough honor. Framerate issues and awkward controls undo a lot of the magic. Whoever manages to look past these issues will have an expansive and varied trip through the colorful Misty Island, the somber Haven City and tough Spargus awaiting them.

    T.K. Baha’s Bloody Harvest is a very simple expansion that offers a cosmetic sidestep from the usual. The short adventure in Hallowed Hollow is dressed up nicely with Halloween details and a few different looking enemies. Aside from that, it doesn’t do anything new and you’ll have finished it in an hour or so.

    Enter The Dominatrix is a simple DLC package that adds five missions and extra content to unlock. The missions are never challenging, and never manages to get as hilarious as you’d expect, though it can still be quite entertaining. Because the other content isn’t enough reason to keep playing, you’ll be done with it in one and a half hours. Except for a few shits and giggles, it doesn’t have much to offer.

    The game never impresses - web-slinging is fun, but that's it, really - but also never really hits rock-bottom. An okay sweetener, while we wait and hope for a Spider-Man game that's finally really good.

    With EA Sports UFC, Electronic Arts takes the first steps in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. As a newcomer to the octagon it shows potential, but next to a scrimpy career mode and entertaining online mode it has little to offer. The balance of the ground battles ensures that it is negligible, and the many small bugs and frame drops can sometimes get in the way of the otherwise fine visualization of the UFC stars.

    Project Spark is upbeat, fun and creative. But, the only way to really enjoy making your own levels is to spend money or put hours and hours in the game to get some in-game money. We were not very amused by the framerate and the lack of community content.

    Escape Dead Island is totally different than any other entries in this franchise. The graphical design and the spontaneous happenings are entertaining, but the shallow combat system, the scant choice in weapons and the many crashes make this game very average.

    Square Enix games were once a guarantee for good RPG’s, but those times are gone. The Last Remnant fails miserably in almost every way, and is highly unpolished. The game has its strong points, like the profound battle system and a lengthy campaign, but the story, visuals and surrounding game world are one big letdown. The Last Remnant is yet another Japanese RPG that doesn’t live up to its initial expectations.

    Family Ski & Snowboard doesn’t change a lot of the basics of its predecessor. The addition of the snowboard is fun, though it doesn’t offer anything new gameplay wise. The graphics are still quite weak and the game doesn’t offer a lot of content. Luckily the gameplay slightly makes up for all this and, even though there are some Wiimote detection flaws, prevents the game from failing altogether.

    Boing! Docomodake is a weird game. It’s both original and imaginative, but also sloppy and lacking polish. The underlying concept of a transforming mushroom is fine, the puzzles are fun, and the platforming action is decent and challenging, but the overall presentation and control scheme are way below average, making Boing! Docomodake a mediocre game at best.

    Shadows of Almia is a bit of a useless game in the Pokémon-series. It’s like the fat girl in class with whom you’re not comfortable talking to, unless it’s only once in a while. The developers clearly need to start putting some effort in their future Pokémon-products, because that’s what the fans deserve.

    You’re in the Movies is largely a technological failure, making the game impossible to play at times. It’s fun to participate in the different minigames for a while, but the only reward is a minute-long trailer that is way too short to include enough images from the efforts everyone’s made during playing.

    Originality doesn't always have to be good. Let's Tap is a cool concept that is unfortunately only used in a bunch of sub par minigames of which there are way too little. The originality and the slick presentation en the very catchy theme song pull this game just above mediocrity.

    Sakura Wars might just be too Japanese for us. The dialogues are quite boring and the fights in the game just don’t bring that spark we were hoping for.

    Enough can be said about Motocross Madness. It's very easy, quite short and hardly polished. Something that's very noticeable when multiple racers are in the frame. The racing itself is pretty decent, so that makes up for a few of the issues, but Motocross Madness can only be described as a simple exercise in futility, and not much more than that.

    Mario & Sonic Sochi 2014 performs well and especially the Dream Events are fun. But it controls superficially and the explanation of events isn't explanatory enough. With a little more attention for the gameplay it could've earned gold. Or, well, silver at least.

    FIFA 15 could’ve been brilliant. The presentation, different modes and gameplay are top notch, but the online gameplay often doesn’t function like it should. It’s strange to realise what we’re willing to accept just to play a football game, but the simple truth is that there is not a good alternative right now. The game is passable, but PES 2015 has a serious chance to win the cup this year.

    Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD misses most of the iconic parts of the Tony Hawk franchise and has a messy finish. The improved graphics and the nostalgic value aside, this game never really manages to capture the pure Tony Hawk experience of the old days.

    Island of Happiness is way too slow for a game on the Nintendo DS. Entering the world of Harvest Moon and staying there for hours can be very unrewarding and not useful at all, while handheld-games should be playable in short intervals. Also, the fun of casual farming is spoiled by the clunky controls.

    Unsolved Crimes offers some original and interesting cases to be solved, but hardly manages to rise above its everlasting mediocrity. Luckily, Nintendo DS-owners have a lot of great alternatives at hand to actually have some fun solving crimes, like the beautifully crafted Professor Layton.
